Biden: Dean Doesn't Speak for Dems
Newsmax ^ | 6/5/05 | unknown

Posted on 06/05/2005 7:27:03 AM PDT by beyond the sea

Democratic Sen. Joe Biden blasted the head of his own party on Sunday for his over-the-top outbursts, saying that Democratic National Committee chairman Howard Dean doesn't speak for him as well as most other Democrats he knows.

Asked about recent comments where Dean trashed Republicans as "evil" and said House Majority Leader Tom DeLay belongs in jail, Biden told ABC's "This Week": "He doesn't speak for me with that kind of rhetoric and I don't think he speaks for the majority of Democrats."

Asked if he thought Democrats needed to "rein [Dean] in," Biden said, "I don't presume to suggest that I could rein in any chairman. But I think that the response from the bulk of the elected Democrats - I don't imagine would be much different."

"I hope [Dean] listens," added the Delaware Democrat.

Wait 'til we get closer to the '08 elections. If Dean is still around, he'll have to be muzzled and put in a straight jacket.

Hey, the dem rats wanted this guy, they got him. This is their tar baby, made in their own image. I hope they enjoy. For the rest of us, say a prayer daily for the well being of howard nut, dean of the demo rat kooks. It's as if he is an RNC mole, installed by the RNC to inflict the maximal damage possible.

Dean's message is loved by the democrat base, but the democrat base, in general, doesn't have any money to contibute diectly to the party.

Sure, I can blame them.

If Dean were effective in bringing in tons of cash, or if he had power, the Clinton Incident tells me they'd all defend him to Hell and back.

Dean is like regular Dems after a few cocktails; with inihibitions gone, the true hate spews forth. Dean DOES speak for Democrats, he just says what they all think.

The more Dean opens his mouth, the better. My only fear about Dean is that he is such a wacko, such a cartoonish figure that it may end up helping Hillary as it will make the media's quest to make her the epitome and very essence of 'moderation' and 'centrism' that much easier by comparing her to this nut. I wouldn't even be surprised if Bill and Hillary aren't privately celebrating everytime Dean goes off on one of his insane rants.

......explaining, of course, his position as head of the DEMOCRAT NATIONAL COMMITTEE.

Best analysis I've seen of Dean's tenure was on another FR thread yesterday. The poster opined that the "Toon" gang's sole reason for allowing Dean to get the job was to tee him up for a Hillary "Sister Soulja" moment. Looks like ol' Plugs is surfing FR and decided to pre-empt! I love the sound of Dims quarreling in the morning!

I'd bet not; fact of the matter is that Joe Biden is wrong...Dean DOES speak for the majority of the 'Rat party, as well as the red meat-loving press.

Hey, the dem rats wanted this guy, they got him.

To be fair, Dean is a very unusual politico. He pulled the whole country together, RATS and Republican alike.

We ALL wanted him to be DNC Chairman.

Dean was elected by the state party officials. Dean ran for the office of DNC Chaiman and the State party leaders elected him.

Hillary explored coming out in open opposition to Dean but the Clintons counted the votes and realized that even with their opposition Dean would still be elected Chairman.

Dean will not resign. And as long as he has the support of the state party officals he is safe. He says the things he says because the Rank and File Democrats who run the party on a local basis love him.

The danger for Hillary is Kerry is going to run again with the support of Kennedy. For that battle Dean will be in Kerry's corner. If the media plays up Hillary as the anti-Dean, the base may very well give Kerry the nomination again.

Biden may very well trash Dean, but you will not hear Hillary bash him if she can stay out of the lime light where Dean is concerned.

Howard Dean did get some kids involved in his campaign, and did raise a few bucks in 2003, but...

When the Democrat Party voters actually started voting in 2004, Dean fell off the face of the earth.

As long as Democrats don't care about actually winning elections, Howard Dean is the perfect spokesman for them.

Biden said, "I don't presume to suggest that I could rein in any chairman".

But of course he has no problem with presuming to rein in the President, the Senate or the American people if they get out of line...

No I don't suppose Howling Howard Dean does speak for Biden or the rest of the party, they are too slick to reveal their evil thoughts-Howling Howard merely amplifies the inner evil they so desperately wish to keep hidded.

"Base" ? When will people understand that the Democratic base is not just cultural elite latte liberals ? It is also minority voters for whom the 90's were economically the best of times ? Blacks don't like cultural elite latte liberals. They like someone who can walk into a church and not look like Margaret Mead in Samoa. Kerry never understood that.

Blacks will give Hillary overwhelming support and that will clinch the nomination.

Howling Howard Dean is making history-he represents the first time in political history that a party's logo, has been promoted to Party Chairman.

Let me see if I have this straight, Joey...

Dr. Howard Dean, Chairman of the Democratic National Committee, doesn't speak for most democrats?

Well, that's comforting to know!

Someone needs to get Biden's face onto a dart board or a urinal screen, TV spots are penny ante compared to what that face could earn in many other places.

The image of Biden's bloated EGO could be valuable in those new anti fat commercials. Bodies the size of Biden's EGO have steady gigs on the Springer show.

If we stood Biden's EGO up beside Michael Moore's body, Moore would appear to anorexic by comparison.

If the media plays up Hillary as the anti-Dean, the base may very well give Kerry the nomination again.

If Hitlery and Kerry factions deadlock the party and convention, Dean may become the candidate of choice. Wishful thinking here.

Blacks will give Hillary overwhelming support and that will clinch the nomination.

Blacks are at best 20 percent of the democratic party and 12 percent of the population. The last time I looked it took more than 20 percent of the Democratic votes to win the nomination.

The other factor is black votes in the inner city are bought votes. Democrats give black preachers "walkin around money" to distribute in their effort to get out the votes.

The last time I checked out the Rev Al Sharpton and Rev Jesse Jackson crowd it had a lot more to do with who put up the most money than it did with who looked at ease coming into church.

"It's as if he is an RNC mole, installed by the RNC to inflict the maximal damage possible."

Got me more than a little worried. Because if the blind-side attack by McCain and Graham on the up or down confirmation votes is unchallenged by the RNC leadership including Ken Mehlman and Jo Ann Davidson, then we don't have a whole lot of hope at the moment, either.

How many times have African-Americans been told to "roll over one more time" regarding the DNC leadership position? The Dean pick must now be especially stinging. If the Democrats dump Dean, there will be huge pressure to finally appoint an African-American as DNC chair.
